Lets hope!! This truck is too awesome to be burdened by a problem that would seem to be an easy fix. I mean it's "2005"! How many years have we had disc brakes and how complicated can it be to manufacture such a standard component? Maybe they're buying cheep, substandard steel or something? At any rate lets hope Nissan can put this nuscience behind us. Has anyone installed a satellite receiver? If I can erase the brake problem, I'll probably have one installed, but would like to switch between the two plans because one carries the NFL and the other carries ML Baseball. Go figure! Could I have the receiver wired to accept both plans where I can switch services month to month? I would think it could be done by installing components from each, and maybe two separate antennas. Is this possible??
#274 of 875 Was going to get a used one!
Mar 17, 2005 (8:57 pm)
I'll tell ya what I was going to get a used one, but after reading all of these forums I think that I should get a new one. I am dissapointed to hear that you are still having the same problems and I has been out for a year and a half. I went to the dealer today and Man I was impressed with the 05 over the 04(I am getting a Titan Posse Cab LE 4x4 WITHOUT the big tow package). Those mirrors are so ugly. I didn't see it in the Brochure but do they still make the Sedona Color(burnt orange). If they don't do they still offer the two tone colored interior Sand/Grey in the Leather. Someone that has bought one recently, let me know cause that is what I really want. Thanks for your help

No Sedona color for 2005 and no Sand/Steel interior for 2005.

Nissan just issued a claims bulletin on 3/16/5 stating they have
developed new brake parts including pads, rotors & floating shims to handle the brake judder & will cover '04 & '05 Titans and Armadas. The warranty will be for 36 months/unlimited mileage from the original in service date. Mailing notices to go out to customers during May and parts to be available shortly thereafter.
So, there ya go.

That's too bad.I have a Black 04 LE 4x4 Crew cab with the sand/steel leather interior, and it's the best looking combination I've seen in a long time. Have to work a little extra to keep it clean..(washing once a week) but it's worth it.

Thanks for the info, Hogboy........My service rep keeps calling me and leaving messages about their service....which has been great so far, and bugging me to fill out the survey. I will and pay him a visit this week and ask about the bulletin. That makes me feel a lot better. Nissan is hoping to win over the loyal owners of the U.S. trucks, so I would expect them to take care of these problems ASAP. It seems to be working............they won me over!
#279 of 875 Mirror visibility problem
Mar 19, 2005 (1:28 pm)
I have been plagued with the deferential problem. Finally got it fixed two days ago. Still fighting the cost of a rental vehicle.
I have been noticing since I purchased the truck (04 Titan Crew with off road package) that the visibility in the mirrors, especially on the right side is dangerously poor. Very narrow range limiting visibility when changing lanes, pulling a trailer and especially when reversing with a trailer.
Anybody else experiencing the same problems ?

Do you have the regular mirrors or the big tow mirrors? I have the BT mirrors and have virtually no blind spots, works great with our travel trailer. If you didn't get the big tow pkg you can alway add the mirrors later, they are really good.

I am not sure what I have but there is a convex mirror below the regular mirror. They are extendable and heated. Didn't know there was another type.
Can't say for sure if it is the regular or tow mirror as I have only seen one other titan.

Those are the tow mirrors. I can't believe you have problems with them, I love mine. Can back a trailer no problem, can see around our 24' TT as long as the mirrors are extended.
